God does not ask

He asks only your availability.
Mary Kay Ash
Communication with God – prayer – is a
two-way conversation. It
is not just
the voicing of praise and petitions, but often communion. Sitting in silence with God,
listening for whatever He may want to say.
Simply enjoy the fact that He is,
and you are, and you have a relationship with Him.
These special moments
with God are when His fresh breezes can enter your heart and
a countenance is made beautiful by the soul's shining through it,
so the world is made beautiful by the shining through it of God.

which melts the soul, when you are making so much noise

Be silent and God will speak again.

surest way to determine whether one possesses the love of God is
whether he or she loves his or her neighbor. These two loves
separated. Rest assured, the more you progress in love of
neighbor the more
your love of God will increase.
Teresa of Avila
Some people want to see God with their eyes
as they see a cow,
and to love Him as they love their cow—for the milk and cheese
and profit it brings them. This
is how it is with people who love God
for the sake of outward wealth or inward comfort.

Unless in the first waking moment
of the day you learn to fling the door wide back and let God in,
you will work on
a wrong level all day; but swing the door wide open and pray to
your Father in secret,
and every public thing will be stamped with the presence of God.
It is good and true to think
that every ray of the sun touching the earth
has the sun at the other end of it.
Just so, every bit of love
upon God’s earth has God at the other end of it.
Mark Guy Pearse

This is painful and frustrating.
Our spiritual work is to break down the illusion that we

I find it quite improbable that such order came out of chaos.
There has to be
some organizing principle. God
to me is the explanation for the miracle of existence –
why there is something instead of nothing.
Allan R. Sandage (Cosmologist)

I have a right

that God’s love for you is absolutely steadfast, and unlike
he does not give or take away his love based on your performance
or your qualifications.
It will not take God by surprise when you discover an area in your
life that is less than
what it should be. He
knows it already, and even knowing all there is to know about you,
his love and concern for you have not budged one inch.
We mustn't reserve communing with God just for
morning and evening prayers,
or for weekly worship service, or for when we feel burdened. The
goal is to realize
that every moment is a meditation. Allow yourself to marvel at the
wonder of God's work
all around us. Throughout your day, let the sun, a tree, a piece
of fruit remind you
that everything you could ever want has been provided and can be
found right here
on earth. While changing the baby's diaper, give thanks for the
miracle of creation
you hold in your hands. . . . The moment you begin to consider God
in everything you do, the world around you softens and your life
You'll feel healthier, happier and at peace with yourself.
Susan L. Taylor
relationship with God developed at an early age.
I was raised on a remote little ranch,
where I had for company and for the fullness of my life three
other humans and an enormous
amount of animals and land and sky and wind.
As a child, my experience of God included
everything—a love of the whole beauty around me.
And the country was so beautiful:
mountains that ended in aspen groves and streams, thick with wild
animals and game
of all kinds.
One time I said to my mother, “You know, I think heaven
is just like this,
only the animals would speak to us; they wouldn’t be afraid of

The divine in that person is God.
God exists in that person
just as God exists in you.
To love God is extremely easy because God is
divine and perfect.
Each time you look at an individual, if you can consciously
become aware of God’s existence in him or her, then you will
not be disturbed by his or her imperfections or limitations.

expect Him to act. . . .

steadily, and persistently, results will come.
